This safety video program on Introduction to Industrial Hygiene discusses how industrial hygienists look at the work environment, identify problems that could affect workers' safety and health, and find ways to eliminate or alleviate those problems.
Industrial hygiene has been defined as “The science and art devoted to the anticipation, recognition, evaluation and control of those environmental factors or stresses arising in or from the workplace, which may cause sickness, impaired health and well-being or significant discomfort among workers or the citizens of the community.” Quite a mouthful. So what does that all mean? And what does an Industrial Hygienist actually do?
Areas covered in the program include:
- worksite analysis,
- air contaminants,
- chemical and biological hazards,
- physical hazards like noise, vibrations, light, temperature, heat and radiation,
- ergonomic hazards, and more.
The safety video program comes with a quiz, a scheduling and attendance form, a training certificate, and an employee training log.
